12 Steps to Look Gorgeous in 2016

Welcome to 2016, everyone! With twelve brand new months ahead of us, we’re very excited to get thing started. Whether you’ve made any beauty resolutions for 2016, or you’re just going to wing it, the most important thing is to start with healthy habits. We know how busy everyone’s life is, so we’ve put together a list of small tips that you can incorporate into your daily life. These small steps will make a big impact, so read carefully and get ready for your most beautiful year ever.

  1. Get enough sleep. Beauty really does start from within, so before we get started the most important thing to do is make sure you’re taking care of yourself. Getting enough sleep during the night (experts recommend 7-9 hours for women) will give your body enough time to repair and rejuvenate for optimal condition.
  2. Drink lots of water. Staying hydrated is equally important. The recommended amount for women is 9 cups or 2.2 liters per day. Drinking enough water will keep your skin plump and hydrated and keep your organs working properly.
  3. Always remove your makeup. Sleeping in your makeup can prevent your skin cells from shedding naturally and cause clogged pores, leading to breakouts and black heads. Always remove your makeup with a gentle, non-drying cleanser like Filorga Foam Cleanser.
  4. Moisturize nightly. Take advantage of your skin’s natural repair process and apply a moisturizing and repairing cream like Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift and Firm Night Cream at night. This cream contains a ceramide complex and peptides for younger, smoother skin.
  5. Go organic. For an intensely moisturizing and smoothing treatment, try Dr. Organic Vitamin E Pure Oil Complex. This complex contains pure Vitamin E to fight cell damage and protect from free radicals, while regenerating and repairing rough, sun damaged, or chapped skin.
  6. Wear Sunscreen. Rain or shine, sunscreen is always important. Sun damage accounts for the majority of premature aging and can also lead to some types of skin cancer. To keep your skin protected, apply a sheer, oil-free sunscreen like SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense SPF30+, that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.
  7. Use a hand cream nightly. A nightly application of hand cream will moisturize your hands and keep them looking youthful. It will also help strengthen brittle nails. We like Dermalogica Multivitamin Hand & Nail Treatment.
  8. Don’t shampoo every day. Shampooing too often can wash away your scalp and hair’s natural protective oils. Keep your hair healthy, and save time, with a quick spritz of dry shampoo. Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Dry Shampoo will remove impurities and absorb excess oil for gorgeous, clean hair.


  1. Give yourself a weekly facial at home. Get clinic-worthy results right in the comfort of your own home with an exfoliating peel like StriVectin LABS 5-Minute Weekly Glycolic Peel. This two-step resurfacing treatment will purify your skin before delivering a powerful AHA complex to slough away dull, dead skin cells and leave you with a glowing complexion.
  2. Find a great eye cream. The skin around your eyes is thinner than the rest of your face, and more prone to aging. A great eye cream will keep this area smooth and wrinkle-free. Dr. Dennis Gross Hydra-Pure Firming Eye Cream promotes collagen production and nixes puffiness.
  3. Hydrate your lips. Unlike the rest of your skin, your lips do not contain any oil glands, making them prone to drying out. Keep your pucker soft and moisturized with Rodial Glam Balm Lip SPF 15, a rose flavored lip balm that will nourish your lips and keep them protected from the environment.
  4. Don’t forget your body. Using a weekly body scrub will exfoliate your skin and keep it soft and glowing. Elemis Frangipani Monoi Salt Glow contains mineral salts to purify and soften, and Tahitian monoi oil and Frangipani flowers to condition.
